The Role of the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone in the Gentrification of Harlem
MetadataShow full item record
This project examines the ways in which the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, through the attraction of capital investment, has facilitated the process of gentrification in Harlem. My study attempts to determine whether dramatic demographic and social changes in Harlem can be attributed to, at least in part, to the policies and programs of UMEZ. In addition, it presents the concerns of the Harlem community about gentrification and UMEZ priorities through the discourse and activities of grassroots organizations within Harlem.
